It's been a busy summer at OISS and we are excited to announce a few staff promotions, introduce you to some new members of the team, and announce some changes to advising caseloads. You can easily find contact information for everyone on our team on the OISS Staff page, and you can search by your department or school name to find out your designated OISS adviser on the Connect with OISS page.
